    Jay – love the “Font”.

    Rareth- you got lovely results with David’s tutorials

    I got distracted with the new abstract tutorials. My attempt on Extreme materials - creating an abstract pattern with super reflection 3 - by David Brinnen

    The 1st three are as the video and the last I used a torus and the sphere material from the last tutorial.

    Mix and match, I like the way you are thinking. You might get a better composition for the last image with a narrower FOV. Just a thought.

    Well done!

    Thanks David, will give it a try, the file is still open

    By the time I tried to post, the narrower FOV rendered.

    Looks like it is on fire inside, nice render I like the blur in the reflection. good attention to detail.

    I'm just rendering this larger in Octane. The model was made using the DTE in the Terrain Lab input and exported as a mesh from Bryce. Look at that lovely SSS. Octane render, Bryce modeled.

    @mermaid010 - very nice. I love the last one.

    @David - nice effect, I gave it a try, had 5 minutes to spend.

    @Rareth - yours looking better than mine.

    @Jay: Lovely scene. I didn't notice the shovel handle, at first, until I saw the larger image. Love the stucco walls. I think the ivy really sets off the entire scene.

    @Rareth: Great looking abstracts. To me, the first one looks like a close up of a doily. And that dragon, wow. It's make a great night light.

    @David: Thanks for the latest video, it caused me to drift off into left field, at bit. I've run through a few of those islands, water looks really good. Dragon is something else. Objects used for the Octane render look interesting, though my inexperienced eyes don't see the SSS. Still, it looks neat.

    @mermaid: Love your results. The sphere and torus thrown in really looks nice.

    Ha...David produces an almost six minute video and it takes me almost an hour to get through it. Too many what ifs.

    I was able to get the same results, this time, and tried a few different settings as well. I even dialed through different luminance settings in the global ambient, right up to 256, just to see what would result. This worked okay until I set the MRD to 12, then there was a point when the image started washing out. It still looked pretty, but some of the reflections were being washed out.

    I did a couple closeups which turned out nice, though too high an luminance and things got washed out again. The last image, if this system plays nice, is with a elongated cube placed in front of the camera so that the top and bottom of the outer cube was still visible. I used the same texture but cranked bump height up to -300. Interesting results.

    @Horo: Love the rabbits and the reflections.

    Started another tutorial Monday, I had to take the time and C & P the document into Word because if was so long. The image below is part one of this tutorial.

    @GussNemo - thank you. Your abstracts look nice. The modeling tutorial you're doing looks interesting. Modeling can be quite fun, though a bit time consuming.

    Ah the Leaning Tower of Pisa tutorial, I have that never finished it, always have trouble with getting the origin handle where I want it.

    Perhaps, your origin handle was too tilted :)

    Horo, I'm using the extreme curve material on both diffuse and Ambient strength channels, white to black for the extreme curve
    custom sky, everything off or black, ambient strength is 32 Sun is between 25 and 50 diffuse no specular.

    Premium Renderer
    True Ambience on
    blurred reflections on
    RPP 256
    MRD 3
    TA scattering correction on
    Refection correction on

    went and did housework for an Hour and a half while it cooked.

    Handy hint when using the origin handle;

    Set the background colour to Black in the little right hand menu 'Background Paper'. Then the little green square of the origin handle shows up much clearer. Then use top view and one side/front view to place it accurately because if you use the camera or director view, the handle will skew off from it's original axis. :)

    well that I can do.. but this whole unlocking the origin handle in object attributes doesn't seem to work as changing numbers causes the objects AND The handle to move.

    Between the rows for 'Origin' and 'Position' on the right hand side of the [A]ttributes matrix window, there is little red padlock icon.
    Click it to unlock the two and you can then change the numbers in the 'Position' row (thus moving the object) without moving the position of the 'Origin' handle. :)

    ETA: Dragon is looking really good BTW. :)

    On the topic of getting hold of the Origin, for me it only works in the Default Wireframe mode. The Open GL modes are quite unreliable for me in a lot of ways, which is why you very rarely see me employ them in any tutorials. Selection is often iffy and getting hold of handles extra tricky. And moving the origin doubly so.

    Oh and here's another Octane rendered Bryce generated via DTE and Terrain lab object thingy. I know it is not exactly a Bryce render, but it shows that Bryce can be used as an unusual sort of procedural modeler.

    @Rareth - thanks. As with everything new, I need more time than just 5 minutes to get the best out of it. Yellow/green dragon looks nice.

    @bullit35744 - good start for a nice model.

    @David - that model is awesome!

    I've been messing around and mixing some of David's ideas Fluorescent Edge and several high output textures and an HDRI light probe as terrain combining negative and positive lights and the sun.

    Cheers, Mermaid and Bullit...on 'Ivy' work.

    Oooh, that looks like some nice 'messing', Horo. Do 'mess!' some more.

    Thank you, but other times I just turn out things that look like ashtrays. It's a bit random. I can say though, I do like using Octane just to play with the light. The light is lovely in Octane, really super, special... nice.

    @Rareth: Yep, Leaning Tower of Pisa, though I'm finding some numerical errors in some of the tables for the general middle level. I know I sometimes don't copy things completely/correctly so I rechecked what I copied and what I entered into Attributes, and multi-replicate. The figures I copied and entered were correct, yet the torus and cube for the top of the pillars fell well short of the top; where the door was placed was directly behind a pillar, not like in the picture in the tutorial; the two cylinders used to create the top brick slabs and arches were landing in the wrong place; and the cylinders and cubes used to cut the arches aren't positioned correctly. Right now I'm in the process of trying to figure out just where these two should be placed to get a nice looking arch. A pain. Your latest dragon gives me the impression of being solid glass or ceramic because of the mouth. It really looks nice.

    @Trish: That's a neat image. I'm trying to figure out if is a corridor or a lot of windows with a door in the middle. Nice work.

    @David: That is a very intriguing object, it turned out well. Love to see how you made it.

    @Dave: Good looking experiment.

    @Horo: Thanks for the comments. Your recent image is absolutely beautiful. Tutorial?? Hmmm?? :-)

    Still Banging my head against a wall with the Origin Handle, with a single Bryce Primitive it works as advertised, but with grouped objects, even with Bryce Booleaned objects, collapsed to a mech, then exported and imported, when I try to use the Attributes to enter in an exact position for the origin handle, all that happens is the mesh bounding box gets bigger in the direction I wanted the origin handle to go.

    I know I can move it manually, but I can never get it in the exact spot. (yes there is a bit of OCD there...)
